Book Review: Learning, Marginalization, and Improving the Quality of Education in Low-income Countries edited by Daniel A. Wagner, Nathan M. Castillo, and Suzanne Grant Lewis

Changha Lee reviews Daniel A. Wagner, Nathan M. Castillo, and Suzanne Grant Lewis’ edited volume, Learning, Marginalization, and Improving the Quality of Education in Low-income Countries. She underscores the editors’ observation that many “learners at the bottom of the pyramid” live in emergency-affected contexts and are therefore a population of concern for the education in emergencies field. After defining learners at the bottom of the pyramid, the volume discusses support for learning in low-income and highly marginalized communities, such as targeted, contextualized learning approaches and differentiated strategies, including those which leverage education technology. The volume concludes with several case studies from contexts that will be of interest to JEiE readers.
